Global Partnership of Education allocates new funding for its Developing Partners

Now Funding Agencies will be at your Fingertips

Global Partnership of Education (GPE) has announced new allocations for developing country partners, which will lead to a scale up of support for quality education outcomes over the coming years. Cabo Verde, Cambodia, Chad, Comoros and Somalia (Somaliland) are set to receive new grants from the Global Partnership for Education (GPE) totaling more than US$45 million.

This is the second set of grant approvals by GPE’s Board of Directors since the GPE Financing Conference in February 2018 where donors pledged US$2.3 billion for 2018-2020. In March, the Board approved US$95.3 million for its developing partners.

The new grants will support stronger management and planning of national education programs as well as directing resources to address the needs of the most vulnerable and marginalized children.

Board Chair, Global Partnership for Education, Julia Gillard said, “Improving learning and equity through building stronger education systems is GPE’s core business. These new grants are another important step toward fulfilling our commitment to put additional donor financing to work quickly and effectively, and recognize that the learning crisis demands immediate action.”

To access funds, GPE partner countries carry out an inclusive, rigorous and transparent planning process, bringing together education ministries with their education partners and stakeholders. The sector plans are independently appraised and endorsed by in-country partners.

Governments are also required to progressively increase their domestic spending on education to at least 20 percent of their national budget. At the February Financing Conference, more than 50 GPE developing country partners committed to increase domestic spending on education to a total of US$110 billion over the next 3 years.

About the Global Partnership for Education: The Global Partnership for Education works with more than 65 developing countries to ensure that every child receives a quality basic education, prioritizing the poorest, the most vulnerable and those living in countries affected by fragility and conflict-affected.
